fwiw, 4.3.11 is completey broken as far as vfs_fruit is concerned.

I had noted in the wiki in which version of samba various parameters had either appeared or changed to help others with non-current versions of samba.

Feel free to add an additional section with an overview of options and
what version added them.

Otoh, the wiki is basically aiming at the current stable and supported
Samba versions, currently 4.10 and 4.11.

Please don't revert my changes, instead add what you see now as missing
for helping users with older releases as a new section at the end.
